About this event

A Texas Tale is The Cook’s Nook’s second annual fundraising dinner to celebrate and highlight food resilience, access, and equity. All proceeds from the evening go to benefit Farmshare Austin and Green Thumb Farming. Tables will seat 6, and are priced at $1500, or you can buy an individual seat for $250. When you reserve a table or seat on this EventBrite, you are saving your place, and our event planner will reach out to you to complete the transaction. Our unique, four-course dining experience is brought exclusively to you by four chefs, whose food shows a love and commitment to Texas foodways:

  • Joi Chevalier of The Cook's Nook
  • Adrian Lipscombe of Uptowne Cafe, 40 Acres Project, and Muloma
  • Todd Duplechan of Lenoir and Vixen's Wedding
  • Michael Fojtasek of Olamaie and Maie Day

The chefs have created a menu for the evening inspired by their family holiday and Texas traditions, complete with specialty cocktails designed by Rashidi Barrett of the Black Bartenders Coalition and Beam Suntory. The night will be complete with live music and an auction! Doors open at 6:15 pm with cocktails, and our program and dinner follow at 7:00 pm.

You will get to hear from Andrea Abel of Farmshare Austin, Jane Taylor of Green Thumb Farming, and meet and directly support the board members, growers, and agriculturalists from each program who are working to establish resilient, sufficient food ecosystems for their communities.

Please reserve your table here on Eventbrite, and our Event Planner, Anna Christoffersen (anna.christoffersen@cooksnook.net) will reach out to complete your transaction with you and get your guest information.
